undergoing background checks, paying taxes in a penalty and learning english and certainly anything republicans would sign on to, coral, th carol, they'd have a tougher pathway. >> senators have a plan, the president has a plan and the house members say they have a plan. whenever the house gets involved usually there's trouble so what do you think? >> reporter: certainly they will be farther to the right, that would be the expectation, so trying to get all of those ideas out there, and then i think we'll have a better sense of if there may be some insurmountable differences. the difference and you're hearing this also from house republicans, we heard this over the weekend from paul ryan, that they want to do something. obviously the devil is in the details, and the truth is, carol, that time is really what will tell. we can't tell if this is going to succeed right now but when you look at the past, 2007, president bush failed in his attempt to deal with immigration reform, conservative members of his own party scuttling that effort and in 2010 you had kind of a peaiecemeal measure i
taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution eluded past presidents including george w. bush. >> legal immigration is one of the top concerns of the american people. congress' fail ture to act is a disappointment. >> reporter: obama did announce hess administration would stop deporting some young undocumented immigrant but was taken to task at a town hall for not doing something bigger. >> you promised that. a promise is a promise. with all due respect -- >> what i promised was that i would work every single day as hard as i can to make sure that everybody in this country, regardless of who they are, what they look like, where they come from they'd have a fair shot at american dream. >> reporter: still, hispanic americans, the fastest growing voter bloc, helped propel obama to a second term. a wake-up call for republicans. >> i do know there are a lot of democrats in congress who once and for all want to solve this problem, fix this mess, a broken immigration system, and many of always degree with that. >> want to bring in brianna keilar from the white house. first of all, pr

, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning english, and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that's only fair. all right. so that means it won't be a quick process, but it will be a fair process. and it will lift these individuals out of the shadows, and give them a chance to earn their way to a green card and eventually to citizenship. and the third principle is we got to bring our legal immigration system into the 21st century, because it no longer reflects the realities of our time. for example, if you are a citizen, you shouldn't have to wait years before your family is able to join you in america. you shouldn't have to wait years. if you're a foreign student, who wants to pursue a career in science or technology, or a foreign entrepreneur who wants to start a business, with the backing of american investors, we should help you do that here, because if you succeed, you'll create american businesses. and american jobs. you'll help us grow our economy, you'll help us strengthen our middle class. so that's what comprehensive imm
. >> if you politicians would only stop talking about more taxes and more gun bans and more regulations on honest people, and spend a little bit of that rhetoric and a little bit of that energy going after violent criminals of complete breakdown of our criminal justice system and the fact we don't even prosecute criminals with guns anymore, because the system has collapsed, maybe then we would make progress. >> also at some point we have got to say enough is enough. otherwise when the nra will not say that you should not permit the civilian sale of bazookas. what we're talking about is a weapon crafted for war that floats around the streets of our cities, that puts our police in a position of being outgunned by the bad guys, that has kids killing kids with them. >> since the newtown, connecticut, shooting that left 27 dead, the nra says 500,000 more people have joined its membership. >>> anderson cooper, don't miss this, taking on the gun violence debate tomorrow night. he'll take a good long look at both sides of the issue. we're calling it "guns under fire," a town hall special tomorr
